Who's making HOPE MK happen?
Hope MK is run by a core team of people, who are released from their youth/mission roles at their churches or organisations so that they can organise and coordinate the October event each year. Bridgebuilder Trust has been a key partner from the beginning, and Scripture Union joined as a key partner in year 2. New Life Church, and Loughton Baptist Church also release key staff members to enable the event to happen.
Local churches and organisations are a vital part of the event too, either through faithfully hosting projects for us, sending volunteers, sending young people or donating funds. Many denominations of churches get involved and it’s a great united event involving Catholic, Anglican, Pentecostal, Baptist, Newfrontiers as well as other or non-denominational churches.
We have received funding or gifts in kind from many local churches and organisations. The following churches/organisations have hosted projects and/or contributed finances or gifts in kind:
